    2006: FahKara Malone

    November 25: @ Washington 62-36 W
    November 26: Heritage Hills 61-35 W
    November 30: Evansville North 55-35 W
    December 1: @ Henderson County (KY) 65-58 W

    Memorial set the tone early against Washington, leading 31-8 at the half and getting 16 points from Fahkara Malone. Malone did not score in the second half as both teams subbed liberally. Malone's 16 was a game-high for her.

    Malone scored eight straight points at the beginning of the second quarter to help bury Heritage Hills in a 28-8 hole. Memorial would go on to win 61-35 behind Malone's game-high 25 points.

    Finding themselves in a hole with three minutes remaining, Memorial (5-0) scored 11 unanswered points to defeat Henderson County, 65-58. Seven of the final eleven were from Malone, who finished with a game-high 25 points. Even though Henderson County owns the series record against Memorial at 12-4, Memorial has won the last two meetings.

    2006: Amber Harris

    November 23: Pike 60-48 W
    December 3: @ Terre Haute South 69-52 W
    December 6: @ Lawrence North 48-38 W
    December 10: Warren Central 42-28 W
    December 10: @ Pike 60-63 L

    In their first major test of the season, North Central defeated visiting Pike 60-48 behind Harris and her 22 points and 13 rebounds. Harris has 16 of those points and 11 rebounds by the end of the first half. She shot 8-of-13 from the floor.

    Harris led all scorers with 24 points in a 69-52 win over Terre Haute South, extending North Central's record to 5-0. Harris shot 10-of-24 from the field and 4-of-8 from the line. The difference in the game was North Central shooting 46-percent from the field, holding Terre Haute South to just over 26-percent.

    North Central jumped out to an eleven point lead against Lawrence North and survived a 25 turnover performance to win their second road game in a row, 48-38. Lawrence Central held North Central even for the last three quarters, but could not cut into the large first quarter deficit. Harris led all scorers with 22, and hit critical freethrows in the fourth quarter to secure the win.

    When compared to the Lawrence North game, just the opposite scenario against Warren Central in the first game of the Marion County Tournament. North Central was even after one quarter with Warren Central, then pulled away the final three quarters to the 42-28 win. Harris had a game-high 21 points.

    In the rematch of Pike's 12-point loss just four games earlier, Pike came out on top in the semifinals of the Marion County Tournament, handing North Central their first loss of the season. North Central controlled the first half, leading 34-22 at the intermission, and was still up by four points at the beginning of the fourth quarter. But Ashley Barlow scored 16 of her team's 24 points in the fourth quarter to slip by the visiting Panthers. Harris was 6-of-16 from the field and 2-of-3 from the line for 14 points and nine rebounds.

    Up next is a Friday matchup against unbeaten Carmel (8-0).

    2006: Dee Dee Jernigan

    November 23: @ Merrillville 62-68 L
    November 29: Chicago Sandburg (IL) 64-50 W
    December 3: Whitney Young (IL) 44-46 L
    December 6: Gary Wallace 98-22 W
    December 10: Thornton Twp. (IL) 48-22 W

    Merrillville won a lengthy battle into overtime that saw East Chicago lose three players, including Jernigan, to fouls. The 68-62 win was Merrillville's first against East Chicago during Jernigan's tenure with the team. Jernigan had a game-high 29 points, which ironically matched the number of turnovers Merrillville forced on East Chicago.

    It was Kelly Watts' turn to shine in EC Central's 64-50 win over Chicago Sandburg. The Eastern Michigan signee had a game-high 25 points, and Jernigan added 13 points and nine rebounds.

    Whitney Young erased a six-point deficit in the final quarter to win on the road at East Chicago, 46-44. Dee Dee Jernigan led EC Central with 11 points.

    Jernigan saw more bench time than floor time in a 98-22 blowout of Gary Wallace. East Chicago was able to put five players in double-figures and ten players in the box score with points as Dee Dee had a modest five points in the game.

    East Chicago improved to 5-3 with a 48-22 victory over Thornton Township. EC held Thornton scoreless for over two quarters and forced 21 turnovers as EC head coach Ron Edmonds had his team focus on tight defense while holding down the fouling. Jernigan had a well-rounded game statistically, with 14 points, six rebounds and four steals.
